APOD Love the surprise each morning of a new gorgeous and sometimes very interesting APOD wallpaper. I got to say though, really preferred the earlier version. It seemed presented better and more consistent in function. Lately, many days the photo isn't saved to my SD card or the wallpaper isn't changed. I'm using a Motorola Moto G.

Love the app BUT... The settings always self destruct. I set the program to automatically download a new pic and set it as wall paper at 2AM every day. I'm lucky if it works 2 days in a row. I'm not enjoying the app like I should and this issue has been going on for over a year now. Please fix. 5 star app 2 star application of the app.
